TORONTO - A cross-border clampdown on U.S. strippers will inspire men to line up next month to see Toronto porn star Nikki Benz who has risen to the top of the North American adult film circuit. With more than 170 movies to her name, she's due to perform at the Penthouse Club on March 2-3 in Thorold, Ont.

Benz, 29, used to strip at Toronto's Whiskey A Go Go and Brass Rail, before moving to Los Angeles to perform and direct porn flicks. She is the reigning Penthouse Pet of the Year 2011, former Pet of the Month in 2010 and a cover girl for Penthouse magazine. Only one other Canadian girl is known to have been a Penthouse Pet.

Sarnia-native Sunny Leone, 30, whose parents were born in India, was named Penthouse Pet of the Month for March 2001. Leone moved with her parents to California in her teens and has performed in 39 hardcore flicks.

Benz has racked up a long list of credits during nine years of having sex in front of cameras.

She knows the GTA well having settled in Toronto after coming from the Ukraine as a young girl and gaining Canadian citizenship.
